Moses writeth his law; and after offering sacrifices, sprinkleth the blood of the testament upon the people: then goeth up the mountain which God covereth with a fiery cloud.
1 And he said to Moses: Come up to the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel, and you shall adore afar off.
Moysi quoque dixit : Ascende ad Dominum tu, et Aaron, Nadab et Abiu, et septuaginta senes ex Israel, et adorabitis procul.
2 And Moses alone shall come up to the Lord, but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people come up with him.
Solusque Moyses ascendet ad Dominum, et illi non appropinquabunt : nec populus ascendet cum eo.
3 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice: We will do all the words of the Lord, which he hath spoken.
Venit ergo Moyses et narravit plebi omnia verba Domini, atque judicia : responditque omnis populus una voce : Omnia verba Domini, quae locutus est, faciemus.
4 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord: and rising in the morning he built an altar at the foot of the mount, and twelve titles according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
Scripsit autem Moyses universos sermones Domini : et mane consurgens, aedificavit altare ad radices montis, et duodecim titulos per duodecim tribus Israel.
5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, and they offered holocausts, and sacrificed pacific victims of calves to the Lord.
Misitque juvenes de filiis Israel, et obtulerunt holocausta, immolaveruntque victimas pacificas Domino, vitulos.
6 Then Moses took half of the blood, and put it into bowls: and the rest he poured upon the altar.
Tulit itaque Moyses dimidiam partem sanguinis, et misit in crateras : partem autem residuam fudit super altare.
7 And taking the book of the covenant, he read it in the hearing of the people: and they said: All things that the Lord hath spoken we will do, we will be obedient.
Assumensque volumen foederis, legit audiente populo : qui dixerunt : Omnia quae locutus est Dominus, faciemus, et erimus obedientes.
8 And he took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people, and he said: This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words.
Ille vero sumptum sanguinem respersit in populum, et ait : Hic est sanguis foederis quod pepigit Dominus vobiscum super cunctis sermonibus his.
9 Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abiu, and seventy of the ancients of Israel went up:
Ascenderuntque Moyses et Aaron, Nadab et Abiu, et septuaginta de senioribus Israel :
10 And they saw the God of Israel: and under his feet as it were a work of sapphire stone, and as the heaven, when clear.
et viderunt Deum Israel : et sub pedibus ejus quasi opus lapidis sapphirini, et quasi caelum, cum serenum est.
11 Neither did he lay his hand upon those of the children of Israel, that retired afar off, and they saw God, and they did eat and drink.
Nec super eos qui procul recesserant de filiis Israel, misit manum suam, videruntque Deum, et comederunt, ac biberunt.
12 And the Lord said to Moses: Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and the law, and the commandments which I have written: that thou mayst teach them.
Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen : Ascende ad me in montem, et esto ibi : daboque tibi tabulas lapideas, et legem, ac mandata quae scripsi : ut doceas eos.
13 Moses rose up, and his minister Josue: and Moses going up into the mount of God,
Surrexerunt Moyses et Josue minister ejus : ascendensque Moyses in montem Dei,
14 Said to the ancients: Wait ye here till we return to you. You have Aaron and Hur with you: if any question shall arise, you shall refer it to them.
senioribus ait : Expectate hic donec revertamur ad vos. Habetis Aaron et Hur vobiscum : si quid natum fuerit quaestionis, referetis ad eos.
15 And when Moses was gone up, a cloud covered the mount.
Cumque ascendisset Moyses, operuit nubes montem,
16 And the glory of the Lord dwelt upon Sinai, covering it with a cloud six days: and the seventh day he called him out of the midst of the cloud.
et habitavit gloria Domini super Sinai, tegens illum nube sex diebus : septimo autem die vocavit eum de medio caliginis.
17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like a burning fire upon the top of the mount, in the eyes of the children of Israel.
Erat autem species gloriae Domini quasi ignis ardens super verticem montis in conspectu filiorum Israel.
18 And Moses, entering into the midst of the cloud, went up into the mountain: and he was there forty days, and forty nights.
Ingressusque Moyses medium nebulae, ascendit in montem : et fuit ibi quadraginta diebus, et quadraginta noctibus.
